A postcard from Edward G.
Robinson, sojourning in England,
bears this message: "Got lost in
a London fog—almost as thick as
the kind seen occasionally in Cali-
fornia—but don't pass that last
crack on to the Hollywood Chamber
of Commerce."

Don't be surprised if you hear
about a wedding involving Ed-
ward Warburg, son of Felix, and
Mary Cushing, a kinswoman of
President Roosevelt . . . Ditto for
Sir Victor Sassoon, wealthy Lon-
don Jewish banker, and Mimi
Vatou, elder of the Patou sisters.

Some 15 years ago Ijoined the
Woman's Auxiliary of the United
Hebrew Schools, headed at that
time by the late Sarah Simons
Kaplan, who was an inspirational
leader and with whom it was a
real privilege to be associated. At
the expiration of the term of her
presidency I was prevailed upon
to accept that office, and it was
only with the assurance of Mrs.
Kaplan and Dora Ehrlich and the
other staunch members of the or-
ganization, who are today active in
the auxiliary, that I would receive
their full cooperation, that I ac-
cepted.
At that time the auxiliary func-
tioned actively but the membership
by cohiparison was small. Today
we are truly proud to boast of a
large and active membership corn-
prised of a young element of wo-
men who feel it an honor and a
privilege to cooperate with the Ile-
brew schools.
The Hebrew school is my pet in-
stitution, due to the training and
inspiration I received in my early
years from my deceased father, the
late Louis Duscoff, who devoted
his time and energy to the ad-
vancement of Hebrew education.
His keen foresight made it possible
for the erection and construction
of several school buildings in the
then newly developing Jewish sec-
tions. These schools are properly
ventilated and adequately equipped
with all modern facilities so that
attending Hebrew school became
pleasant for the child.
Hebrew education in this trying
era is vitally essential so that our
youth may acquire a knowledge of
the teachings of our forefathers
and familiarize themselves with
the language of our people.
The Woman's Auxiliary holds its
meetings the fourth Wednesday of
each month. The only money-rais-
ing function of the year is a donor
luncheon held in January. The
gatherings are made. interesting
and attractive. A timely message
is delivered by an outstanding
speaker, followed by a musical pro-
gram. The proceeds from the
luncheon, together with the dues
and various contributions, go to
defray the expenses incurred in
arranging transportation for the
children. Those who live at some
distance from the schools are con-
veyed to and from the schools by
special buses.
The Woman's Auxiliary renders
both financial and moral support
to the Hebrew schools. Its board
and members are always ready to
cooperate with the faculty.
I earnestly and sincerely' urge
all Detroit Jewish women to join

MEMBERSHIP DRIVE, HOW OBSERVANCE OF EDUCATION
STARTS AT CENTER
MONTH WAS FIRST INAUGURATED

Seek 500 New Affiliates
During Month of
November

"Five hundred new members
for the Center during the month
of November" is the slogan of the
membership campaign which will
begin at the Jewish Community
Center on Nov. 7, and continue
throughout the month.
Special programs free to mem-
bers are being planned for Satur-
day nights during the month, be-
ginning with a free membership
dance for intermediates on Satur-
day evening, Nov. 7, at the Center
on Woodward and Holbrook. On
Saturday evening, Nov. 14, a free
membership dance will be held
for sub-seniors and seniors. For
both of these affairs admission
will be by membership card only.
All members of the Center are
actively organizing to make the
campaign a success. Special
awards in the form of free mem-
berships are being given to mem-
bers bringing in a specified num-
ber of new members during No-
vember.
All during the month the Cen-
ter will receive visitors at club
and class meetings and at spec-
ially arranged affairs in order to
acquaint them with all of the
acitivities. Anyone interested is
invited to come into the Center
to see the type of activities of-
fered. The Center Bookelt which
is now ready for distribution will
be sent to anyone making a re-
quest for it, or it may be picked
up at the office.
